Is Mobility-As-A-Service (MaaS) the Future of Transportation?

Is Mobility-As-A-Service (MaaS) the Future of Transportation?

Are the days of car ownership over? Proponents of  Mobility-As-A-Service (MaaS) say yes. By offering users the ability to choose between multiple modes of fast, cost-effective and efficient modes of transportation via one single platform, MaaS has the potential to not only revolutionize traditional transportation but the automotive industry, urban planning and the economy as a whole.

When asked why MaaS is the future of transportation, 2019 AV speaker, Nick Pudar, Director, Mobility Open Blockchain Institute explained, "mobility is a strong enabler of economic activity. Historically, our mobility choices have been narrow, mainly due to the economic friction of managing a larger portfolio of choices. Today’s intersection of connected technology platforms enables a much wider range of mobility modalities. The low costs of creating new mobility platforms allows for much innovation and experimentation in the MaaS arena. The resulting larger portfolio of mobility solutions will not only benefit businesses, but it will also provide regular consumers better and more flexible choices."

In this report, we explore:

  • What is MaaS and how it will impact the  transportation and automotive industries
  • An overview of the infrastructure, policies, incentives and data management best practices required to make MaaS work
  • The MaaS Ecosystem and key enabling technologies such as IoT, autonomous and blockchain


2019 State of Automotive Software Development

2019 State of Automotive Software Development

We’re excited to bring you the results of Perforce's 2019 State of Automotive Software Development Survey!

This year, they surveyed over 400 professionals working in the automotive industry. The respondents shared their top concerns in automotive software development today. And they shed some light on the impact of new trends (connected/autonomous vehicle development) and longstanding requirements (ISO 26262 compliance).

We hope this information will help your development team innovate faster and improve quality — while maintaining compliance.

Whether you were able to attend Autonomous Vehicles or not, here's a recap! 

Artificial Intelligence & Autonomous Industry Brief

Artificial Intelligence & Autonomous Industry Brief

There are multiple ways that artificial intelligence can be used, and is being used in the automotive industry. Applications range from autonomous driving and ADAS, to cloud services, personalization and vehicle-to-X communications, to the optimization of manufacturing and the supply chain, to driver monitoring, and even to the automotive insurance sector.

When we talk of artificial intelligence in the automotive industry, thoughts turn immediately to autonomous driving - perhaps considered the ultimate goal in the sector at the present time. However, AI has a multitude of potential uses across the industry including in manufacturing, driver assistance and safety functions, vehicle-to-X communications, cloud services, predictive maintenance, personalization, driver detection software, insurance, fleet management, and many more sub-sectors.

Broken down by the Vehicle, Customer & Systems levels, DOWNLOAD this industry brief to learn more about the tech pioneers developing the next generation of AI-enabled autonomous driving technology. 

AV Safety Features: The Present & Future State

AV Safety Features: The Present & Future State

According to McKinsey, a progressive scenario would see fully autonomous cars account for up to 15% of passenger vehicles sold worldwide in 2030. In the same time frame, Mckinsey’s researchers estimate that the automotive revenue pool will increase significantly and diversify towards on-demand mobility services and data-driven services. This is estimated to create up to $1.5 trillion in additional revenue potential in 2030 - a 30% increase.

More data from the research firm shows that the proliferation of ADAS systems has increased dramatically in recent years. The number of ADAS systems worldwide rose from 90 million units to 140 million units in the period between 2014 and 2016 - an increase of more than 50% in just two years. This, in part, has been driven by a reduction in the cost of the technology and the customer’s willingness to pay for it. With a recent survey showing that on average, drivers would pay an extra $500 to $2,500 per vehicle for different ADAS features.

These growth curves are significant in terms of autonomous driving, yet the same obstacles still stand in the way of successful development and deployment of fully-autonomous vehicles. One of the most important barriers is that of safety, and vast amounts of research and development are being undertaken in order to solve this issue and create the necessary technology to meet safety requirements.   

In our latest industry brief, we explore: 
  • The current and emerging car safety feature trends such as onboard facial recognition, Safety Force Field (SFF), ShadowCam and more!
  • The industry's top 12 guiding principles for developing safety features for autonomous
  • The key challenges associated with developing AV safety features and how the industry is overcoming them across the vehicle, customer & system levels
